could give us a quick reply. guest: the long-term future of the country will depend on a lot of things. the u.s. is taking a lot of steps right now to right the ship. labor may be one of them. taxation may be one of them. there are some estimates that we can be energy self-sufficient in the next 30, 40 years, so maybe that helps. this is a very complex issue. it has to be resolved. there has to be a happy medium there. whether or not it is because these ceos are boring abroad for certain things or not, that is up for debate. i'm certainly not one who will take a position on that because i don't know enough about it to make that call. there are a lot of very smart people out there, who we should respect, they are very good at what they do and they are still debating about what the proper solutions to this is. all right now, this is why we're seeing such a huge amount of debate going on in d.c. and in board rooms across the country. washington, d.c. host: there have been reports that secretary geithner will play a role in these talks. guest: the economic team is in place right now. this
are watching us around the country on wgn america and on the web. the president has lots of hurdles to overcome. including the high unemployment rate. the stock market is off to a rough start. here's a live look at the big board. stocks are trading sharply lower. if your web it could be tough for lawmakers to avoid a fiscal crisis. >> that looming fiscal showdown is just some of the big issues facing the president as he heads back to work. >> there are signs here that the president may be on the move. i'm going to step out of the way. there's been a lot of activity. within the last 20 minutes or so. we saw the senior white house advisor or ride. so did the white house official photographer. he is a former chicago tribune photographer the police motorcycle escort typically leads the presidential motorcade also standing at the ready. the it is very exciting on here. there's a crowd growing in anticipation to see president obama. >> supporter stopped by his home the morning after his reelection victory. hoping to get a glimpse of the commander in chief. the rand daily was among them

[applause] so ten days after a long and con contentious presidential election, it seems our whole political system has become a constant campaign. one election barely seems to end before in the middle of another one. there is virtually no breaking in between. that leaves us tiredded and a little aggravated. a break is especially important in between elections because elections are ab
in the southwest, been in the u.s. since the was basically took half of mexico. and the new latino population which is foreign-born, 40% foreign-born, and the rest of the children of immigrants. very conservative. i know when asked about government they may give answers that are not extraordinary, but sometimes we get tangled, caught up with polls. resort have seen in this election cycle. and i think with latinos we cite polling with specific issues but is that a better understanding of where they're coming from you will get an understanding of why they're answering the questions that way. but i believe with the latino community, we lost the latino vote because of immigration. if we would have a better position on immigration, from the get-go, from the primary governor romney would've been competitive and it would've been competitive in those battleground states where the latino vote was decisive. and, finally, we have to stop being rockefeller republicans. we are not the party of the 47%. you know, when governor romney said what he did last week that obama won because it gives to latinos and other
enforcement, along with the u.s. customs and border protection, as well as federal and local and foreign law enforcement has created this initiative. the first best initiative was created in laredo back in 2005. and it's become a model across the country. and this is a comprehensive approach to identify, disrupt, dismantle transnational criminal organizations that have posed significant threats to the border and maritime security. through investigations, seize years of contra-- seizures of contraband, they are building success. there are 48 units throughout the united states. they work not only with the mexican counterparts but with the canadian counterparts. certainly we want to make sure that congress provides the best support to the best units in order to enhance border security and of course the communities that we have -- that we all represent. so, again, members, i would ask that you all work and support this bill and today, a very appropriate time, we had the new president-elect of mexico that came down here, met with members of congress and i believe at this particular time he's meet

, senator-elect joe donnelly of indiana. anyway, that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. with less than four hours to election day, this thing is going down to the wire. this is "the ed show." exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a way, this victory was brought to you by the radical governors, who spent the last three years stumping all over the middle class in their states. there's something all of these governors have in common, i'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, ric
february, which is pertinent because he made an important point. he said, maybe you can even use the word. the arab spring will come to china? i think we should be quite self-confident, not overconfident, but i think we have a sustainable model and then much less certain that china has at this point a truly sustainable model. so that's not really my worry from a european point of view. my worry is a different worry. i worry as we look at these global challenges that paula mentioned from terrorism to piracy to proliferation, it better, et cetera, our ability to create and maintain a functioning system of global government -- governance appears to have declined. our ability to have a working system of global governance. when i look at what's going on this area, to u.n. security council is dysfunctional, not working, not capable of coming to a conclusion. the g20 has not fulfilled, at least not according to me, the expectations we had when this larger body was created. in other words, from a european point of view, you need to worry about the fact that europe will have obviously a smaller po
welcome our viewers who are watching us around the country on wgn america and on the web. wgn's judy wang joins us live from mccormick place, where president obama will be spending election night. judy? >> play certainly not taking it easy. many of the foot soldiers received no guarantees that they will get in. what a difference from four years ago when 240,000 people filled grant park. thousands more poured into downtown streets to be part of the historic moment. mostly a private affair. many supporters will likely attend smaller events. cnn is working with the state to try to put up a jumble television screen. >> we know america has always done best. we thank you. we ask you to stay at a all the way to victory. he'll spend the election night in boston. if early voting is any indication turnout for tomorrow's election in the chicago area should be strong. w-g-n's tonya fransisco spent some time at the cook county board of elections and has a look. illinois is not a swing state. illinois voters are fired up nonetheless. 20 percent of voters have already voted early. people >> came out
us tonight. we invite you to join us at 8:00 starting on c-span. listen to it on c-span radio. also tune into c-span.org for more information and other information concerning election night 2012. for our first 45 minutes, we want to have you weigh in on why you decided to vote or perhaps why you decided not to vote. and here is how you can best reach us at the bottom of your screen -- you can also put something on our facebook page or tweet us and also you can send us an e-mail. again, for our next 45 minutes why you decided to vote or why you decided not to vote. the headlines from the battle ground state newspaper, the "miami herald," final countdown. polls open at 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. that's the "miami herald." the end of the road, clinton stops here. -- clumps here, romney finishes tonight. the columbus dispatch out of ohio, it's decision time. poll hours, 6:30 a.m., 7:30 p.m. the subhead, the last push. a big choice on the government's role is how they decided to headline the subhead. candidates may be close in the polls but their visions are wide apart. just to give you a sa
about doing this with yemen, too which is of course in an area of the u.s. and saudi arabia to cooperate a lot on counterterrorism, on the gcc initiative to get the power not only the thing is how do you get this desperately poor country running out of everything all but once given the chance to get back on its feet. we are still working together on that. the big issues you to brief the next secretary on our iran sanctions and syria. the imposition of the current set of sanctions wouldn't have been possible without such a deal last november but if the sanctions led to iran losing up to or a little more than half of its oil exports, with saudi arabia be willing to step in and make those exports and i think with a caveat that we probably can't make up all of iran's exports whether it be a mechanism to totally shut them down because that would take the saudi production right up and leave no spare capacity which tends to be a driver for the higher oil prices. so, as the sanctions have come about, we had some bumps in the oil market particularly in the spring in anticipation, but as they've b
for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. last night was a big victory for the american middle class, a victory for workers, a victory for progressives, and you know what, a real bad night for the billionaires. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> whether you pounded the pavement or picked up the phone. whether you held an obama sign or a romney sign, you made your voice heard. and you made a difference. >> there will be four more years for president obama, and no one can deny it. >> i think this is premature. >> tonight, the great victory for the american middle class, with e.j. dionne and richard wolffe. the secrets to victory with john nichols. the massive win for women, with terry o'neill. the diverse coalition that won it all with annette in florida and the great nina turner in ohio. and the boots on the ground have prevailed over citizens united, with leo gehrard of the steelworkers. >> we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection o
, broadcast news has been outflanked and overtaken by scores of other media options. help us understand the perceived need for these changes because they not only affect the quality of network news, by the way, do you agree with me that it is in the twilight zone a? >> it is in a twilight. but remember, twilight is usually followed by night and then don follows night. i am still hopeful. you know, it is not going to stay this way forever. i think, you know, what tends to happen in this country as you and i have observed over the last 50 or 60 years, we tend to go too far to the right, and then we correct course and passed through the middle and go too far to the left, and then we correct course again i think what is happening to broadcast journalism requires a course correction. as we come to realize that our educational system is not as good as we like to believe, that our health care system is not as good as we like to believe, that we are spending -- i mean, there are so many things that are on the brink of taking us into real disaster. not the least of them being the possibility of
compassion and strong convictions. i wanted a president who was smart. >> that's it for us. thanks for watching. "early start" begins now. >>> welcome to a special election day edition of "early start." it's here and the battle for every last vote is on this morning. the best political team on tv has it covered from wire to wire today. >> i'm john berman. the first election results, they are in from the tiny towns of dixville notch. and in one of these towns, it's a result we've never seen before. >> the campaign trail extended. i'm christine romans. governor romney will keep pressing with two stops in the battlegrounds while president obama shoots hoops, an election day tradition. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. the immense damage from hurricane sandy forcing an election day scramble. people voting by e-mail and different polling stations and in some cases literally moving the earth to have their voices heard. >> joining us throughout the morning, congressman randy forbes of virginia, delaware governor jack markell, jim clyburn, obama campaign senior adviser david axelrod, bob mcdona
that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
that he's doing now so when some of us suggested the misreading of the mandate he did it for years ago. he threw away the approval rating to spend the stimulus package written on all this other stuff, massive debt and spending and you had a million people go to the streets around august, april 15th. he had only just showed up and started spending crazily. tarp ii me and you then have a reaction from the movement that reacted in 2010. people lost the elections over spending too much. okay. the first by half to get whacked was arlen specter of pennsylvania. i was working with him to get in the elected and on the labour union demand not wanting to have elections to have power. he was going to fend off the right of center primary and be able to govern and get reelected and then obama said if you vote for the stimulus instead of philadelphia and we can probably do some things to be helpful in pennsylvania and he said i just want a free election. when the primary. i'm going to sign on the stimulus. obama is going to stay out of get out the vote against me and people will be happy i brought someb
what? it's unpatriotic. maybe finally maybe finally the rest of us, the rational among us have reached a breaking point when we're not going to be willing any longer to get the shrill voices of extremism trump the scientific ones. when we'll listen to those who warned us for decades that we need to act. the latest version of bloomberg business week has this simple and brilliant cover. it's global warming stupid. this storm has ushered in an unprecedented national conversation about climate change. we cannot squander this opportunity to shift the trajectory of the conversation and the future of our planet. afterall the climate itself has already changed. governor andrew cuomo said as much in his remarks today. >> i don't believe anymore that this is once in a lifetime or once in 100 years or once in a generation or just a fluke. you look at the number of devastating floods, the number of devastating fires the number of extreme weather patterns is going up. that is a fact. that is a fact. >> jennifer: it is a fac
of the presidential election not finalized for longer than any of us can imagine. vice president gore and i put our hearts and hopes into this campaign. we shared similar emotions so i understand how difficult this moment must be for vice- president gore and his family. he has a distinguished record of service to our country as a congressman, a senator, and vice-president. i received a gracious call from the vice-president this evening. we agreed to meet early next week and agreed to do our best to heal our country after this hard fought contest. tonight i want to thank all the thousands of volunteers and campaign workers who worked so hard on me -- my behalf. i also salute the vice-president and his supporters for waging a spirited campaign. i thank him for a call i know was difficult to make. we wish the vice-president and senator lieberman and their families the very best. i have a lot to be the ankle for. i am thankful french american and finkel we were able to resolve our -- think we are able to resolve our differences in a peaceful way. and thank you to the american people for the privilege o
you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the moment president obama supporters were told he secured enough electoral votes to be re-elected as the 44th president of the united states. president obama is not naive about his place in history. the victory was a repudiation of the right wing agenda. also an affirmation of the president's vision for the country. >> what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a
that the employer can use. now, i grant this isn't just a skills training program, but you've got to know how to write, to speak, to think. and i think a lot of our problem is that we graduate many students that don't necessarily do that well. and if the humanity majors, and they do not do that especially well, then they have got trouble. so, and they can't necessarily prove they do those things will. earlier someone said, i think you, jim, talked about the need for computer skills. my guess is that if the humanities majors, major really helped some sort of certification, that showed certain skills. i think that we haven't fully grappled with how to deal with our desire, our feeling that we need to have the humanities as a critical part of the university, we need to have the numbers, students take these. we believe that but we haven't grappled with how we can get these folks jobs. they are not going to get at the big corporations and less they have very good grades. and we can't necessarily, so far, it's not easy for them to establish they have the skills, especially if they don't have those
will not even use the word marriage? >> it depends a william e. my liberal. if you are a libertarian liberal, as the cato institute is, they would say yes. if you are more of the state should create conditions for human flourishing, the answer is not simple. here is what i will say more broadly. one of the easy mistakes of the whole debate is an over investment in lesbian and gay people on marriage and family lot generally. most people who are in relationships are in relationships between different sexes. there are millions of them. they're wonderful. they produced a bolt of children. what goes on in family law is overwhelmingly what goes on in heterosexual relations this -- heterosexual relationships. it is moving in the liberal direction the way you are using the term. the theme of my georgetown article. it is moving every decade of my lifetime, family law. i think also family practice has moved away from the strongly sanctifying, sanctimonious relationship created by the state and make a limited by the state and marriage towards a more contractual approach. the colorado statute might be a

hanitet and he is disgusted by it >> the white house is playing games with us. who was in charge. who did the president say should take care of this? did they want to rescue the ambassador and people killed with him? why was nothing done for sevenhours? you now have 7 weeks of refusal to explain seven hours and i find it mystifying. >> gretchen: current politicians and senators and members of congress asking a lot of the questions . the white house is pushing a particular picture in the situation room for hurricane sandy. this is where they gathered. many people are asking where that picture was from the benghazi situation room? we saw the images when osama bin laden was killed. that photo of hillary clinton with her hand over her mouth and where is the picture from benghazi? >> the whet white is good at putting tick tocks what the minute by minute from the president. the president would like to know more than anybody what happened on that day, and he is in the best position to do it. we have osama bin laden picture of the president and other white house officials looking in real-time at
